****“Beetlejuice” did a frenetic number that won’t sell a ticket at the Winter Garden. “Beetlejuice” is about to be squished. Word on the street last night was that Hugh Jackman will be taking “The Music Man” to the Winter Garden next season.****
Although it's not completely clear, I guess this full quote makes it seem like Riedel is saying BEETLEJUICE is about to be squished because it won't get any boost at the box office from it's Tony performance, and the MUSIC MAN comment is just an added bit of info that implies no causal relationship.
